USAT Liberty Shipwreck

Level beginner – experienced

Depth 6 – 30 meters

Entry shore / beach (rocky)

 

Our number 1 dive-site in Tulamben. This historical wreck from World War II is 126 meters long. It’s full of corals and marine wildlife with some interesting swim-throughs.

It’s one of the most accessible wrecks in the world right at the beach and perfect to do spectacular nightdives.

The USAT Liberty was torpedoed in 1942 by a Japanese submarine. Americans and Dutch tried to bring it to Singaraja for repairs, but it made too much water in front of Tulamben. They beached the wreck, but it was pushed back into the ocean in 1963 by lava due to an eruption of Mt. Agung.
